Keith Flint The Prodigy's vocalist dies at 49

Keith Flint, lead singer of The Prodigy has died at the age of 49. "Sadly, a 49-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene". "His next of kin have been informed", the spokesman said, commenting on the death.

They said the death was not being treated as suspicious and a report would be prepared for the coroner. "Sadly a man in his forties died at the scene". However, he shifted to vocals in 1996, singing with what would become his trademark punk snarl on Firestarter, a global hit single.

Keith started off with the group as a dancer and then shot to fame when he sang Firestarter and Breathe.

Born in Redbridge, East London, he moved to Braintree, Essex, as a child and met The Prodigy co-founder Liam Howlett at a nightclub in the town.
